Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 12

by Rod Nicholls, Race Officer 4 Jul 21:25 BST 3 July 2018

A smaller fleet turned out this evening with ideal sailing conditions. With England playing in the Football World Cup and a few days before the ISC Round the Island Race it was expected.

The tide was ebbing at the start and a starboard tack took most of the boats off the line with a short beat up to Royal London YC buoy. It was then across to the Bramble Bank before turning up to the east for a beat and then turn back to the line. All the boats were back by 20-30 hrs.

A few boats deserve a mention on the results lists.

John Dudley in his Half Tonner "Pinball Wizard" had his first win of the season after a good second place last week in Class 2. Also a first of the season goes to Richard White in "Reasons To Be Cheerful" in Class 3.

Barry Byham seems to be unstoppable in the Sonar class with his 6th win.
